Hi I'm Pam

I am a Grandmother of nine and a Great Grandmother of one. I have great interest in geneology and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I retired as a network engineer from the State of Indiana after 32 years. i am currently the Director of the Family History Center of our ward and enjoy helping others with their geneology. I am taking piano lessons and find it very challenging and satisfying at the same time. I love being able to visit the Sisters of our Ward on a monthly basis and helping anyone anytime I can.

Why I am a Mormon

After reading the Book of Mormon there was no doubt in my mind that this is the true gospel, and after attending church I felt as though I had come home. In our Ward we are like one big family. I love doing my visiting teaching and helping others whenever I can. I know in my heart that we have a living prophet here on earth. I know that I am a daughter of our Heavenly Father and that he loves me.

How I live my faith

I am the Director of our Family History Center at the church and truly enjoy helping others do geneology and locate ancestors. It is a wonderful feeling to see the expressions on people's faces when they can expand their family tree farther than they ever dreamed. I also enjoy attending activities at our church because it is always a bonding time with other members and it good clean wholesome fun plus there is usually some really delicious food.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Being a Mormon means reading the scriptures daily, praying daily, dressing conservatively, but most of all there is a feeling of peace. We try to live our lives the way we believe God wants us to live so that we can return to live with him someday. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about family?

Mormon's lives are focused on their families. Mormons have a Family Home Evening once a week but it is usually held on Monday evenings. They have a family prayer, a lesson on the gospel, some entertainment, such as a game, a movie, music or some activity that they can do as a family, a snack and a closing prayer. Our families are most important to us and they always come first. It is our responsibility to take care of our family, set examples for our families so they will want to live their lives in order to return to Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
